At the age of five, Schult began her career at her local football club FC SG Gartow, before moving to Hamburger SV in 2007. She joined Magdeburger FFC in 2008, where she played in the third-tier Regionalliga. At Magdeburg Schult became a regular starter and achieved promotion with her team to the second Bundesliga, where she played two full seasons. In 2011, Schult signed a three-year contract with Bundesliga side SC 07 Bad Neuenahr. In 2013, she signed a two years contract with Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League champions VfL Wolfsburg.
Schult reached third-place with Germany at the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, appearing in two matches. Two years later, she was Germany's first choice goalkeeper at the 2010 U-20 Women's World Cup, which the team won. The tournament was played on home soil in Germany. Schult was called up as third goalkeeper for Germany's 2011 Women's World Cup squad. Her first team debut was on 15 February 2012 against Turkey.
